. the protection against government sponsorship and promotion of religion, which is a vital component of religious liberty. i will just say a few words about where we are today and where we used to be. they are important right next to each other. as for the separation of church and state, the protection against government sponsorship of religion there was little and today it is far more robust, but absent flows and a lot of that depends on the current competition and chemistry of the supreme court and the rest of the federal court in state courts as well. but a while back there was virtually none. i think there is a great deal more of that protection today. it is very much in jeopardy. on the free exercise side, it is never been particularly robust in this country, unfortunately. and i think it is very fortunate. today it is a mixed bag. in 1990, the supreme court severely limited the constitutional protection for free exercise in the way that i think probably all of us at this table think was wrong. and since then, there have been legislative efforts to correct the problem. what the court said ba
they don't want it to be manipulated. they're put together by two separate government entities, bureau of labor statistics, the labor department, and then the census bureau. and then the employment numbers, put together by the labor department. that tells us the number of jobs created by businesses. then there was a household survey, where field representatives go in and call a number of households, putting that number together. you combine the two and that is the report we got this morning but with 2,000 field representatives involved, and two government entities involved, it is almost impossible to manipulate these numbers. >> that is why we needed it all explained, as always, sue herrera. >>> now to breaking news out of arizona, where last night we reported the possibility that they were looking at the possibility that the u.s. border agent killed there may have been the victim of friendly fire. tonight there is more, more at the border patrol station in bisbee station there. good evening. mark, good evening >> reporter: and good evening, sources tell nbc news they expected an annou
throw out an accusation, that's like asking the government how often do you beat your wife? >> i should have had a question mark, at the back of it. let's face it. but the facts are no matter how you want to look at this, we had 25 economists polled before this number came out. the average number they expected was about 115,000. >> yes. >> not one of them had a number below 8.1. >>> tomorrow, three suspected terrorists are expected to make their first court appearance in new york. they were extradited from britain overnight after a legal battle that lasted more than ten years. one suspect has a hook for a hand and has called osama bin laden a hero. the radical cler iic is wanted r several crimes commit against the united nations the '90s. >>> the fbi now thinks that border patrol agent may have died by friendly fire. nicolas ivey was shot and killed in california. initially officials said ivey and his colleague were wounded after responding to a censor. authorities say the only shell casings found at the scene were those belonging to the agents. >> as you know, investigators are made pr
of that nature. now, it's different whether there's a government grant, where the market power derives from political authority. and that's true of some of the essential facility cases. stadiums, stadium approvals and the like. but if the facility has become essential through market processes, which is surely the case of google, it represents success. and that firm is entitled to all the reward it can gain. now, greg and bob do a terrific job of showing why the google experience does not fit the scraps of law on essential facilities. but i think they should go further. they should deny that there's any merit to the concept at all. now, i think this is true of other parts of the paper. as i alluded to earlier, much of the paper is empirical. and i learned a lot from it really. there's a lot of detail in it. and i learned a lot. but the -- those responses and that empirical -- making the point that criticism by competitors of google's practices are just wrong on the facts. but i think that that's not enough. especially in representing the chicago school. the failings of the arguments by googl
. >> well, i felt for governor romney the moment he used the line trickle down government. that's a phrase hadn't used before. you saw instantly people started retweeting it and picking up on it legitimate break through moment in describing the president's philosophy and even this next day governor romney started using that on his speech. >> interesting. nick, let's play it for viewers in case they missed it. >> the president has a view s.e. very similar to the view he had four years ago that a bigger government, spending more, taxing more, regulating more, if you will, trickle down government would work. that's not the right answer for america. >> you like that because it's a catchy phrase? >> no. it's more than just a catchy phrase though. that's more than a scripted line. in a nutshell it synopsized how governor romney feels about the president's philosophy on government. the fact that he used it the next day in his stump speech and probably use it going forward means it has resonance and catching on with the base. >> nic, you are presidential historian, how do you describe his lacklust
which has allowed him to fill up those government coffers, and his government proposes that, yes, they have shared the wealth, and it's true that even according to the u.n. there are fewer people today living in poverty in venezuela than there were when chavez took office. you know, randi, there is a sense here that, look, his time is over, and that's not just because he fought cancer. he claims he's cancer-free but on the campaign trail he isn't looking very healthy, and there is this sense that chavez revolution, the very left wing socialist revolution that he started, could be waning and the problem is taking from government coffers they haven't really invested as much. if you start from that oil infrastructure moving right down to the roads, in caracas, in the capital or out to the regions where there's lots of power, this is a country hanging on by a fiscal threat and they say next year default is perhaps possible and for sure financial restructuring will have to happen, and that could mean a devaluation of the currency here. randi? >> paula, what is at stake really for the

say it was at the expense of a lot of infrastructure in the country and basically the government was taking the oil profits and trying to redistribute it and not spending in a very efficient way. it's hard to believe, this country still has huge infrastructure problems. you look around sometimes, anything from medical to the roads to schools, and it still has a ways to go even though it had all of that oil wealth. >> what is the explanation behind that? that's a big contradiction. >> it is a big contradiction, and you know, hugo chavez has been in power for a long time. says look, it takes time. that's my explanation. if you look at the indicators, yes, people in extreme poverty, he has been able to bring down the numbers. at the same time, his challenger, a 40-year-old man, lawyer, comes from the elite but says he will work for the poor. says look, this country has not been running its economy well, and chavez, it's really going to be a cliffhanger in the end to see which they side with. chavez has a cult following with some, but many analysts say his popularity has waned especi
as the government would like it to be and certainly not as great as the american people would like it to be. i think that when you look at the number of jobs added in the last month, it was good. it was better than expected. lower than the average for the years. we added 11000 jobs, 10,000 of those were from government, and the average for the year for each month was 150,000. so it's slow, but it is moving in right direction. >> thanks so much. once again, here's jenna. >>> and while the economy may be picking up, there's something else on the rise as well and it's much more unwelcome and it's gas prices. they spiked overnight once again in california, reaching an all-time high and drivers are not happy to say the least. more now from christa dahlgren. >> reporter: just when californians thought things couldn't get worse -- >> five bucks? oh, my god. >> reporter: even bigger sticker shock. prices up another 20 cents a gallon since midnight. >> going from $4.70 a week ago. >> reporter: in california, the average price per gallon is up 36 cents in a week to $4.49. 67 cents more than this time last yea
